What could be improved … “uncertainty about how the test would be formated” “I like the experts that come in … More of that would be great” “students participate for points and do not interact with each other in class” “I would like current events to be integrated into class discussion … Oracle/BEA” “more Professor talking less students” “could integrate some cold calling into class discussion to shift discussion away from ‘repeated speakers’”
